PERSONALISED MEDICINE: Every Bodies’ Business

Cremorne Theatre, QPAC

Summary

Medicine made to order.

The last 50 years has produced phenomenal breakthroughs in medical science that have revolutionalised human health. We can now probe, image and analyse the human body in more detail than ever before. The next iteration is made-to-measure health, a prospect that has tantalised medical professionals since the first human genome was mapped 15 years ago.

Our panel of scientists and clinicians will explore the future of so-called precision medicine and the possibilities, availability and affordability of truly personalised health care.

This event will be signed by a professional Auslan interpreter.
